Schools' Responses to COVID-19 with NFER

Ahead of this year’s Pupil Premium Conference, in the latest IG Schools Discussion Webinar we were joined by Angela Donkin, Chief Social Scientist at NFER, to examine the latest research published by NFER on schools’ responses to COVID-19.

In an insightful and wide-ranging conversation, we discussed the changing needs of teachers, the impact of this year on disadvantaged pupils, and how the findings can help school leaders prepare for this next academic year. With guidance and practical recommendations from Angela, this conversation is supported by detailed research which you can find more information on below.
